PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) - A North Texas 2-year-old is now an internet sensation.

A video showing her ability to identify (and explain what every organ of the human body does) hit more than 80 thousand views on YouTube.

Elizabeth Christensen can already read and is teaching herself how to play the piano.

Her mother credits a nearby library in Plano where she has taken her two children since they were able to walk. Christensen borrowed the anatomy kit from that same library, which her daughter used to learn about organs.

"All we wanted to do was keep her occupied," said Elizabeth's mother.

Plano will use the popular YouTube video as part of the city's promotional campaign for its libraries.
